Not long after the world learned that Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are dating, rumors of the couple getting hitched began to circulate.
The talk of Khloe and Tristan getting engaged has yet to be confirmed, but they've both made it clear that they plan on starting a family together.
First, however, they'll need to overcome the challenges presented by a certain member of Khloe's existing family.
As you may have heard, the 30-year-old Robert Kardashian Jr. is having a bit of a rough time in life lately.
And by that, we mean he's been behaving in spectacularly douchey fashion by bullying the mother of his child on social media.
Earlier this month, Rob accused Blac Chyna of cheating, using him for his money, and being addicted to hard drugs.
It was all done publicly and seemingly without provocation.
Rob says Chyna was sleeping with another man, but that shouldn't have caused him much strife. Or at least this much.
Since ... ya know, they were already broken up when all of this happened. (A fact that seems to be lost on the reality star.)
For obvious reasons, all of this isn't sitting well with Tristan, and the situation may be a threat to his relationship with Khloe.
A source close to the situation tells Radar Online:
“[Tristan] sees Rob as an over privileged loser who’s draining his family dry, and it would be hard to get anyone to disagree."
Unfortunately, it seems Khloe is displaying her trademark loyalty to her family and is entirely unwilling to cut Rob out of her life.
“He depends on her in an unhealthy way," the insider says, "and she’s desperately worried what would happen if she wasn’t there.”
The situation is apparently causing a fair bit of discord in an otherwise healthy relationship, but Khloe says believes she has an obligation.
Not just to stick by Rob's side, but help however she can.
She hoped her BF would support that, says the insider:
“Khloe’s desperate to keep an eye on Rob, especially as he’s borderline suicidal, and she was hoping Tristan would be game to join in the help plan."
"But let’s just say Tristan isn’t a fan."
Sounds like Khloe may soon be forced to choose between the two men in her life, and given how close she is to both, that won't be easy.
In reality, blood is thicker than water, or something, so we see where she's coming from ... but let's also be realistic here, Khloe.
We might be more sympathetic to Rob's plight if he wasn't making it so hard to see him as anything but a whiny, abusive bully.
Sorry, Rob, but seriously - get help, bro.
